It’s been a rough week. I’ve been playing catch up (not to be confused with all the ketchup used on all of the hamburgers and hot dogs I’ve been serving because there has been no time for real meals)all week. I went away to Bloggy Boot Camp in Dallas last weekend and I tuned out of social all together. That was a good thing, but I’m incredibly behind! I have posts to write, I have work to do, and most importantly, I have family time to catch up on. I took some time at the spa for ME this week as well, and it was very needed, but it too put me far behind. So I was stressing. What could I find to sparkle about this week?
As always, my family came through in a pinch and they sparkled up my world even when they didn’t know they were doing it! On any given Saturday, B went to the store for some stuff I needed. I didn’t NEED flowers, but they showed up, and they sparkled.
A dozen of these make me smile every time!
And the weekend moved on. We had to stay in for reasons that will become evident in the coming weeks. B watched football and ran my errands while I stayed at this little black box and played catch up. That was sparkly enough.
But it was Sunday evening and there was nothing for dinner. As I turned from my computer to ask if ordering pizza was OK, I saw the most amazing sight. It was quiet, and it was beautiful, and it was all that I love in this world minus 2.
They had fallen asleep.
And so had he!
I should have jolted to my computer and caught up on some work. I should have started to fix dinner. I should have gone grocery shopping. But instead, I reveled in the beauty and I just enjoyed the moment.
Sometimes it’s just best to sit back and enjoy the beauty in your life and forget about the chaos. Tonight I did just that!
Enjoy the beauty, love your “NOW”, and embrace the moment. And as always, Sparkle On!
